We freshened up the site a bit - mainly to give what you're saying more prominence.
No, you're not imagining things — Concord Patch has a new look! Early this morning, the site got an update designed to make it even easier for readers to use. We did a quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture. We hope you like it!
